Cameron Diaz Clarifies Remarks On Sexuality, Says Heterosexual Men Should Be Able To Admire Other Men

Cameron Diaz made headlines last month when she was quoted as telling Glamour UK that "all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point."

The 41-year-old star of "The Other Woman" and "Annie" clarified those remarks in a new interview with PrideSource's Chris Azzopardi. Though she seemed to dismiss media claims and stopped short of saying that she could see herself in a same-sex relationship ("That's not at all what I said. That's not what I was saying. That's what people are [saying]), Diaz nonetheless added that she can "appreciate the beauty" of women.

"I've said this forever: I think women's bodies are beautiful -- all shapes, all sizes," she said. "Every part of a woman is beautiful and that's something that we've celebrated culturally throughout history."

And she doesn't think appreciating beauty in the same sex should be limited to women, either: "If they're confident in themselves and know who they are, heterosexual men can look at another heterosexual man and go, 'Yeah, he's pretty hot. He's a sexy man.'"

When pressed about who her current Hollywood "girl crush" is, Diaz shrugged, saying she preferred a "natural beauty."

"Honestly, I think the girls need to step it up a little bit," she said. "I'm disillusioned with all the Botox and all the filler and all the fakeness."

In 2010, Diaz offered similar remarks in a Playboy interview, when she noted, "Sexuality and love can be different things."

At the time, she said, "I can be attracted to a woman sexually, but it doesn’t mean I want to be in love with a woman. If I’m going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn’t mean I’m a lesbian. We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it’s hard to define."
